Well, the written in word should probably be "which" so even the corrector needs correcting. I also love love love the capitalization. The quotes are still the best thing about it.Anyhow, if they're using "Beautiful Park" as a euphemism for cemetery then "park" is, oddly, the only word that does belong in quotes... and it's not. Pretty funny
Great site! What's the deal with people using quotation marks for emphasis all over the place? It's making me crazy, as I seem to see it more and more every day. Another common and incorrect way that emphasis is attempted is through the practice of capitalizing words that do not warrant capitalization. -Melissa DonovanWriting for Writers
I was going to say the same thing as Jeff, that "park" should be in quotes, but nothing else should...this was a good one.
I'm not sure the word "that" or "which" is needed at all.But great sign.
I think you're right, thuro. That makes the fact that someone wrote it in to correct it (using an incorrect word... or at least a less correct one) even more funny.
i had to put my quotation vest on.
Well, they do need something to wipe off the Soylent Green.PAPER TOWELS ARE.....PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!!
i find it odd that someone would name a cemetarty Beautiful Park, unless it's simply another victim of ranDom capitAlization.i'm truly blown away at the number of people who have been misled about the proper usage of quotation marks! and why they're so often put in charge of signage.
actually, i kinda like "Not into the toilet" as a catchphrase. especially for a cemetary, specifically of the pet variety. Beautiful Park "Not into the toilet." An alternative resting place for Flippy.
I swear I could hear Chris Farley's voice as I was reading this. This one is classic!
After seeing all of the quotation marks in this one, I had to share the following. This is a direct copy of a comment left on a news story:This woman's clothing was certainly "inappropreate." As a frequent flyier I don't want to see "clevage" on a womans body from "either end." Dress code or not the airline did the right thing. This was not a "nudist flight." If she was so "humiliated" she did't have to get back on the same airline. She's had her 15 minutes of fame so lets move on. This was really not "news." Not sure which is more annoying, the spelling or punctuation. At least from this blog I see that not everyone slept through English class!
Holy cow, it's quote mark heaven!
I love the fact that "Jessica" had a camera with her at a funeral. But that sign - that's something else.
